The Guildhall Museum in South Street dates back to 1450, when it was built as a hall for the Guild of St Mary. In 1546, the Guildhall became the Town Hall for the newly formed Corporation of Boston.

Boston’s most famous ‘prisoners’ were the Pilgrim Fathers who were arrested and tried in 1607 before eventually escaping to Holland and then on to Massachusetts, where they became the Governors of the new town of Boston. Visitors can see the very cells in which they were imprisoned and imagine what those Puritan founders of the modern USA must have felt!

Boston not only has the tallest church tower, but also the tallest working windmill! Maud Foster Mill, built in 1819 is still used to ground flour and it is open to the public three days a week (extra day during the summer ). There are remarkable views of Boston from the mill tower.

It will connect the Rivers Witham, Glen, Welland, Nene and Ouse and will open up 240 km of waterways creating a new circular waterway for recreation, tourism, fishing and the environment.
